We put a lot of energy into creating safe and fun environments where kids can learn about Jesus! It’s a place where faith, imagination, and learning go hand-in-hand. It’s a place where loving God is cool!

Our Kids staff and volunteers are the best. You can rest assured that your children will be loved and well taken care of while you enjoy the service.

We think church should be fun for kids, so we’ve created experiences that are a blast for children of all ages! Your kids will participate in fun activities and crafts, energetic worship, and storytelling with other children their age.

Sunday Mornings @ 8:30AM & 10:30AM
River Kids: Birth - 5th grade

Wednesday Nights @ 7PM 
River Kids: Birth - 5th grade

Wednesday nights are all about GROWING!
We break up into small groups by grade and by gender to maximize the ability for kids to:
  • GROW in their knowledge of God
  • GROW in their relationships with other kids
  • GROW a mentorship relationship with their small group leaders.
We would like to give you a tour and see what to expect during this season.  If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]

Your first visit!

If it’s your first time bringing your kids to River of Life, don’t worry…we’ve taken care of everything! Just head over to Kids Guest Registration and we’ll meet your family and register you into our check-in system.

During registration, we will ask for the following information:  family member’s names, children’s birth dates and grades, address, phone number, and any special instructions for your child (allergies, medical conditions, special needs). This helps us make sure your kids are safe while you’re enjoying the service! Once the registration has been completed, a host will show you and your child to their age-appropriate room.

Pre-register online and save time!

You can make your first visit a little easier, by registering your kids in advance. On Sunday, when you visit Kids Guest Check-in, our Kids Team will confirm your registration and guide you to the appropriate room.

How Check-In Works

If your family is already registered in our system, just head to the main kids check-in located in the front of our main kids entrance, and then parents can bring their child directly to their classroom.  Signs throughout the church will direct you, as well as our volunteers.

You will simply enter the last 4 digits of your phone number into one of the kiosks located kids main entrance. After selecting your child’s name on the kiosk, you and your child will be given matching check-in stickers for that service. Your sticker will be used as a pick-up ticket, and your child’s sticker will be used as a nametag. After service, you’ll return to your child’s room and show your pick-up ticket. A child will not be released to their guardian without presentation of their pick-up ticket.

If we need to contact you during the service, we will send you a text or phone call. Just swing by your child’s room with your pick-up ticket and speak to the room leader.


Creative Biblical Teaching

Bible stories and spiritual truths will come to life through skits, activities, and discussions. It’s our goal that kids learn to love God’s Word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.

Age-Specific Environments

Our environments and lessons are tailored to meet the spiritual and developmental needs of each group.


Safety is one of our highest priorities. Every time you check your kids in you’ll receive a unique parent identification tag that corresponds to your child’s tag. Additionally, every Serve Team member is screened and participates in a background check.


When kids have a blast at church, they can’t wait to come back! You can be sure that your kids will have fun each week as they learn about who God is through games, activities, small groups, and teaching.

Nursing Mother's Room

If you have a newborn, we have a Mothers Room that has comfortable chairs, a changing table, and a live feed of the service.

Life Groups for Kids

Every Wednesday night during the school year, your kids will meet in Life Groups with other kids their own age to learn more about God’s Word and our virtue of the month! With games, hands-on activities, and incredible leaders, your kids are bound to have an amazing time!

Love Kids?  Be a Volunteer!

We are a growing church and we always need more volunteers in all areas of our kids ministry, from nursery to fifth grade.  All of our kids workers go through a background check.
